The Grizzlies Screening - Banner Graphic

GFF x WAG present The Grizzlies


We’re so excited to be teaming up with the Winnipeg Art Gallery to screen the Manitoba-premiere of The Grizzlies on Thursday, April 18 at the Winnipeg Art Gallery! Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the screening will start at 7 p.m.

Based on a true story, The Grizzlies follows a group of Inuit youth in a small community who gain a powerful sense of pride and purpose through the sport of lacrosse, in this account of tenacity, renewal, and inspiring resilience in Canada’s north. The Grizzlies had its world premiere at TIFF 2018, and is currently nominated for two Canadian Screen Awards.

Tickets are $30 for general admission and $20 for students.

After the screening, there will be a reception with a cash bar and snacks. The event is a fundraiser for the 2019 Gimli Film Festival (July 24 -28, 2019) and the WAG‘s Inuit Art Centre.
